A Letter to the Congregation announcing RPC's new Senior Pastor

To our RPC faith family,

We are overjoyed to announce that at the called Congregational Meeting earlier this afternoon, the members of Roswell Presbyterian Church voted to call the Reverend Jeffrey "Jeff" J. Meyers as our new Senior Pastor. This vote confirmed the unanimous recommendation of your Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC).

Jeff is currently serving as Teaching Pastor at North Avenue Presbyterian Church in Atlanta, where he has served for over ten years. We believe God is calling Jeff to RPC because his gifts fit the needs of our congregation. Briefly, Jeff is:

  • a Christ-centered pastor whose love for God resonates through his life and his sermons
  • a gifted preacher who shares Biblical truths and weaves in stories and humor to create engaging messages that impact our daily lives
  • a strong leader who effectively manages a wide variety of ministries and viewpoints and casts a vision for the future
  • a dynamic teacher who inspires people to a deeper level of discipleship
  • an energetic and approachable pastor who connects with people of all generations

Jeff will be transitioning out of his role at North Avenue, and we anticipate him starting at RPC on Monday, January 30, 2017. His first Sunday to preach at RPC is scheduled for February 5, 2017.

The PDF of the brochure provides additional information about Jeff and his wife Courtney.

We ask you to remain in prayer for the RPC congregation, Session, and staff. We also ask that you pray for Jeff and Courtney, as well as North Avenue Presbyterian Church during this time of transition.

We are extremely excited about this next chapter in the story of Roswell Presbyterian Church and are anxious for the entire congregation to get to know Jeff as we have over the last few months.

In Christ,
